Abstract: The description of the variety of English in the Philippines (PE) has usually been examined from the perspective of language learning. In this research, a contact language approach is taken in examining the Philippine contact ecology to account for the emergent linguistic features of PE and the associated widespread code-switching, commonly referred to as Taglish, which takes place within the bilingual speech community. The data examined is from a portion of the Philippine spoken corpus data of the International Corpus of English. Most of the earlier studies had relied on data in the written form but using spoken data provided natural and unscripted language use which is argued to reveal insights into the features which have emerged and crystallized through actual use. It is shown how the substrate influenced the development of PE and that the phenomenon of Taglish switching is evidence of skilled bilingualism rather than pertaining to a language variety.
